… Favourite Places …

… two of my favourite places feature in this watercolour … Caffe Nero and The Sheffield Cats Shelter Shop … Caffe Nero has been a sanctuary for me over the last few years, providing a welcome oasis to think, have some space, do some painting & sketching, and make new friends and acquaintances …. I also love it because it is dog-friendly (for well-behaved hounds) … and of course, have my favourite Latte or Mocha ! …

… The Sheffield Cats Shelter has been helping Cats & Kittens since 1897 ! and their shop raises much-needed funds …

… visit them @ Ecclesall Road, Sheffield S11
